FIT AG, headquartered in Lupburg, Germany, has announced the addition of a state-of-the-art computer tomography (CT) system to its growing inventory of advanced manufacturing technology. FIT claims to be the first AM manufacturer to establish an in-house QA department and stated that having in-house CT scanning provides customers with an even greater level of confidence in its AM parts produced.
Due to the non-contact and non-destructive measurement and analysis of inner structures, FIT is able to increase process stability for its manufacturing systems. The CT system allows FIT to identify or verify the existence of pores, cavities, fissures, form deflection, displacement, shape distortion etc. Evaluations such as design versus part comparison or analysis of wall thickness are visualised in colour and serve as proof of specified product requirements.
